NEW YORK DEMOCRATS COULD ELIMINATE OCASIO-CORTEZ’S DISTRICT AFTER 2020

link

Apparently New York State is poised to lose one or two congressional seats after the 2020 elections and the easy money is on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez losing her district to redistricting.


REP. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ is prepared for the possibility that Democrats in New York could redraw her district after the 2020 election, she told The Intercept in an interview.


AOC has been an abrasive opostion to the Republican party but it would seem she hasn't made to many friends in her own party. It seems like a friendly knife in the back is what she needs to worry about more than a frontal assault.


Ocasio-Cortez’s most determined adversaries are not partisan Republicans, but Democrats who say that she has been a disruptive influence. The Hill recently reported that at least one member of Congress has been urging New York party leaders to recruit a Democratic primary challenger to Ocasio-Cortez. 


But she doesn't plan to go down with out a fight ...


Moving her into a different district would pit her against another incumbent Democrat, and that Democrat has an incentive to avoid that race. ”Maybe some people wouldn’t want trouble for themselves,” she noted.


It was this statement that caused me to write this post. What could she mean by this? What kinda "trouble" can she bring to an as yet unknown chalanger.

She's not saying that she would likely be the better candidate so she is not worried... she is saying whomever she challenges is going to find themselves in trouble.

It's an odd point of confidence.



Oh and there is this ... Apparently Schumer (Senate minority leader) has to worry about the trouble knocking on his door.


Another reason not to target Ocasio-Cortez would be Chuck Schumer. The Democratic Senate minority leader, and a major player in New York politics, is up for re-election in 2022. The commission redrawing the lines may be technically independent, but Schumer’s power is no secret. If Ocasio-Cortez were gerrymandered out of the House, she’d need something new to do — and primarying Schumer would be an obvious option on the table. That could make Schumer Ocasio-Cortez’s strongest advocate at the redistricting negotiating table.

She's a household name already.

That is all that was necessary.

The state of New York is already lost. I feel bad for those who are residents and love the USA, but with Cuomo, Mayor Big Bird, and Cortez, NY state is the soon to be California of the east coast.


Have a friend who lives there in Rochester and trying like hell to convince him to GET OUT!

NY will never be California. To many rational people live in cali.
Unfortunately there are more who are not rational that make up the population of the 'sanctuary cities'.

On topic:
It will certainly be interesting to see the infighting of the Dems in 2020

Rather than worrying about how their going to keep their pet idiot, the dems should examine why people leave their bastions of ideology.

Anytime a city or state gets democrat control, it goes to hell. And people leave.
The ones that are left kill each other wholesale.

Sirhan Sirhan was also a household name but that didn't make him favorable in public opinion, right?

Democrats would be wise to get rid of AOC. Right now she is their village idiot and is only hurting the cause. Without AOC Pelosi can take back her rightful title as head dumbass.

That's why I support AOC. That and she makes California look (a tiny bit) better.

Wait, wait, wait... gotta gets my head around this...

So if New York drops a Congressional district after 2020, and the district dropped is Cortez' district, then she will either try to use standard operating procedure (Antifa tactics) to oust her competition, or could possibly go after Schumer's seat?

Senator Ocasio-Cortez?


Why am I reminded of the classic horror movie scenario where a super-virus or evil creature is created in a lab, then somehow escapes to destroy its creators?

What is it about AOC that makes the right fear her so much? A total nobody but she is being relentlessly attacked by the right and that only means one thing, she is feared.

See I don't think AOC is an idiot but if she was, she would not get further than she has now and that is the difference between the right and left. The left does not ELECT THE VILLAGE IDIOT TO THE HIGHEST OFFICE.

LOL the left was all over Trump before the election LOL they thought there was no way he could get elected, BUT THEY DIDN'T FEAR HIM TILL HE GOT ELECTED. Besides the left was stupid enough to back the one person enough of America hated, that allowed Trump to get elected.

AOC is useful as it shows the depths that socialism has usurped the left.

Fear?

Is that why you guys are destroying comedy? You're afraid of laughing? That's all I have seen anyone doing with Cortez: laughing at her (other than actually analyzing her statements, which is simple political debate). I haven't seen anyone saying she should not have been seated... nothing about impeachment... not one word about censure... nary a peep about removal from office.

The far left was demanding impeachment against Trump, on the other hand, before he even took office. Every word is met with anger, not laughter. Your own statement calls him a "village idiot," even though he seems to have done a lot more good for the country in 2 years than any President I have seen yet do in 8.

Now, tell me again, which 'side' is afraid of who?

There is a better explanation than fear as to why the right is attacking this "total nobody" relentlessly.

1) Her far left leanings means she is the embodiment of every talking point the Republicans have on the left. She is the perfect example for them to show their base, and people they want to pull in, that everything they have been saying about the left more broadly is true. AOC clearly has no qualms of flying the banner of the far left; but other Democrats do; if the right can successfully paint all Democrats with the AOC brush it would be a strategic win.

2) The news media has focused on AOC disprepositionately due to her rags to riches story.


No fear required.... except on the part of NY Democrats if this story is to believed.
